I was 6 years old, sitting in my back yard, in Palm Bay, Florida, where it flew right past our house!!! It was amazing to watch, and I still remember our grade school class trips to Cape Kennedy, to watch other launches, and feeling the ground vibrate when those awesome rockets took off!!! It was very special to watch what NASA was doing back in it's heyday!!!
Oh, I agree with you, this is all purely speculation, but I do know that Urban, with Day's help recently, put together Top recruiting classes for the last decade, and the defense has some NFL talent all over the field. If Mattison and company can put the in the correct position, I just think that this will be the most improved unit in the B1G this year. If so, then the offense won't have to carry the team the way that Haskins and Co. had to in 2018, and this will pay HUGE dividends.
PS Don't be surprised if Tuf comes back a few steps quicker, because, with this type of injury, he never should've stepped on the field until he was 100%, which he wasn't for the entire year.
scUM only returns 5 starters on defense, and unless they get some speed on the field, I think that they will continue to pound the Indianas and Rutgers teams, and lose to good teams. Michigan State returns 9 on their excellent defense, so they could dominate on that side of the ball, again, but their offense is so terrible that they continue to put too much pressure on the defense. OSU has speed to burn on defense, and if the offense continues to flourish, which they should, with Ryan Day, then I think that the defense will get better and better before the tough Big Ten schedule kicks in.
Thank you so much for sharing your awesome story, and thank you so much for your service!!! My Dad did three tours in Vietnam, so even though I was still very young, I have vivid memories of that time period, both with my Dad going back and forth between Fort Knox, Kentucky, and Vietnam, but my family going back and forth between Fort Knox, and Palm Bay, Florida. Living in Palm Bay, on the back porch of Cape Canaveral, allowed me to watch the moon launches from our back yard, so that was really a cool time for a grade-schooler!!!
Shoot me an email to Woodylives69@yahoo.com and I'll send you a list of 400 OSU games on DVD, the last few years are in HD.
Luckily, I catalogued all of the OSU victories that were online, before they were deleted.
I think that the online video thing is drying up, but I do have over 400 OSU games on DVD.
I agree 100% about how full of shit Finebaum’s attacks on Urban have become. He likes to also say that Urban left Florida “in shambles”, yet Muschamp won 11 games in his SECOND year, before he proved that he can’t coach.
They were 12-0, and ran into that badass Mooney team, and Big Red played a really error prone game, and Mooney took advantage. Reno teams are always fun to watch, though!!!
My son played for The Red in 2007, so I know how good the program is, and I’d love for the nation to see a bunch of 200 pounders beating the crap out of a bunch of 250 pounders. Big Red can hang with a LOT of proud HS teams!!! RRR
If we can’t have Urban for another 10 years, I’d like Chris Petersen, or Justin Fuente.
I am also 55, so we are in the same club! But, I also attended Arizona State when Cooper was the coach out there. I didn't mean to imply that ASU was EVER in the same class as OSU, or ever will be, but I was just stating that ASU was a very good program from the late 50's through the 80's, and into the Bruce Snyder era in the 90's. Obviously their biggest continued success was when they were in the WAC, when they won bowl game after bowl game for years, under Kush, as a WAC member.
You must be pretty young, to make the statement that Arizona St wasn't as big when Cooper was there as it is now, because the ASU program in 2018 is pretty stickin' irrelevant, compared to it's history from 1958, the beginning of the Frank Kush era, through the 1986 season, when Cooper won the Pac10, and beat scUM in the Rose Bowl. Besides the USC Trojans, ASU in the 50's, 60's, and 70's was the best NCAA football program in the West, whereas, they suck now. Having said that, you are right, Coop wasn't ready for the scrutiny that being the Head Ball Coach in Columbus brings, hardly anyone is really ready for that. Let's hope that Urban stays another decade, so that we Buckeyes fans won't have to endure somebody trying to grow into the HUGE shoes that it takes to run our Elite program.
And Brees played for Westlake, which is Matthew Baldwin's high school's bitter rival!!!
I agree with you, this kid can play, and he plays at an ABSOLUTE QUARTERBACK FACTORY. New Arkansas Coach Chad Morris used to coach there, when Lake Travis won 5 State Championships in a row, and they've had QBs that include Michael Brewer, the QB for VA TECH when they beat OSU in 2014, future Heisman winner, Baker Mayfield. Not many HS programs can say that their last 8 starting QBs went to Division 1 schools. http://preps.blog.statesman.com/2017/07/17/matthew-baldwin-8th-straight-lake-travis-qb-to-make-college-pledge/
I think that Baldwin might be able to help out at OSU!!! GO BUCKS!!!
It's hard to believe that, with USC being the bowl rival that we've played against the most, that it's been since 1974 that we've beaten those guys!!! It's going to be nice to play them on a neutral field, and with so many alumni from both schools living in and near the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, there should be a very large amount of fans from both teams in JerryWorld!!! Let's just hope that OSU is motivated for this tough challenge!!! GO BUCKS!!! BEAT USC!!!
Nothing would help the Buckeyes more than Georgia beating Auburn. It would obviously eliminate the Tigers, with their 3 losses, but it would also hurt Bama's strength of schedule, leaving the Tide with no Conference Championship, and a loss to a Non-Conference Champion. I know it's the situation that OSU was in last year, and hopefully it doesn't come back to bite the Buckeyes, this year, because OSU got in over the Big Ten Champ in 2016!!!
Get ready, because I believe that the only person that will be willing to take over that dumpster fire in Knoxville will be BRADY HOKE!!! The Hoke era in Knoxville should be fun to watch. (I wonder if he'll call the the Crimson Tide ALABAMA STATE?!?!?!)
